Due to popular demand, owners of Samsung's new Luxia LED edge-lit UNxx6000 and UNxxB7000 series can discuss and post their custom settings here, including what they've found to look best and settings that were created through professional calibration. The panels used for the 6000 and 7000 series are identical, so settings should be comparable on each. This thread isn't for the UNxxB8000 or the UNxxB9000 since they both use a different panel.


I'll post my custom settings once I get my UN40B6000.

I would have liked to see this stay in the owner's thread, I don't know why we always split calibration from owner's threads here.

Makes it easier to find the calibration info. Hopefully people keep it just about that as it seems some of these calibration forums go way off topic.


With that said I just put in the CNET settings and they are good for low to moderate room lighting.

I noticed CNET has the xvYCC off. this is supposed to expand the color option why would you not have this turned on all the time. I have read alittle on this feature and it would only come into play if the source your watching has this process encoded. I am not sure this is true . Samsung states this is being processed in the LCD with the label WIDE COLOR. anyone else have any ideas.

It's greyed out so they can't change it. I believe because their source device is RGB. Mine is greyed out as well.

ibis I think I remember when you turn on edge enhancement this will allow your to turn on xvYCC . if someone is at home they can check this now and tell us.. or I will log on later and update this page and the other that ask about xvYCC.

xvYCC will be grayed out if the source device does not support it.

I suggest leaving it off, there is no content encoded with xvYCC support.

is only available in MOVIE mode. and will be changeable to on or off.


sharkcohen you may want to do more reading or tweaking before you make statements. 1st most of the new HD camcorders have this option available as listed on sonys website. second , BLUray may or may not have this encoded currently, the last article that was on the HD news stated that some have it but most are not listing this as a feature and recommend leaving it on. if it is encoded it will have better colors and if not , then it will only show the sRBG colors. either way you will get the best pics ,probably why they only allow it be changed in MOVIE MODE. this can be used even on normal DVD but it was not an industry wide standard.


2nd I would recommend turning it ON.

Sharkcohen I am not picking on you and I am open to all ideas but this is an owner calibration thread I didnt see where you purchased or stated that you have this TV . it would be hard for me to trust your statements on calibration if your not actually viewing this LCD model.

Trying your movie settings right now to watch WAR until Fringe come on. I like them. My HDMI is not greyed out so I had to leave it in Low. Also my

xvYCC is still greyed out. Here is what the manual says.


xvYCC → Off / On

Setting the xvYCC mode to on increases detail and color space when watching movies from an external device (ie. DVD player)

connected to the HDMI or Component IN jacks.

xvYCC is available when the picture mode is set to Movie, and the external input is set to HDMI or Component mode


I looked thru my setting and can not find a place to set external input, not sure where this would be. I also found out when I start my Xbox 360 then xvYCC is avaliable but not when I use my PS3. Something to post in the owners thread for later I guess.


Thanks.

I have a 2008 Samsung model, the features/settings are very much the same. I don't think I have to own a Luxia to assist people with general Samsung LCD questions. I do know what I'm talking about, but you're more than welcome to dismiss my comments.

are you using HDMI to connect both the Xbox and the PS3. I have my DTV HD receiver connected with HDMI. I will look at my PS3 here in a few minutes to see if in movie mode I can still access the xvYYC option .It would seem strange that the PS3 would not have this option since sony invented the xvYCC standard. just make sure all your connections are HDMI or Componet input.
